Question about Epson PowerLite 740c Multimedia Projector
Projector is connected to laptop with standard computer monitor / component video cable. (Projector works properly when connected to a Dell workstation computer.) On the laptop, display settings have 2nd monitor enabled, with setting selected: "extend desktop to second monitor". Projector shows only a Windows XP logo blue background screen, but does not show the desktop display that appears on the laptop. One troubleshooting screen suggested the display adaptor could be the problem--only AGI or AEP(?) adapters would work. Laptop has Radeon ATI adapters.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You have not set the port on the back of the projector settings.
Go into the projector menu and go into the IMAGE area. Somewhere in here you should be able to select computer.

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.
This sounds like the LCD panel used for the red color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the red panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image. This causes a nice red hue to the whole screen.
It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

if you go through the projectors setup menu you will find the option to invert / flip and rotate image adjust as required

The likely cause is either dirty optics inside the projector or some of the special mirrors inside the optics are burned. If the projector was used a lot then the special mirrors are probably burned. If it's just dust on the optics the unit could be opened and cleaned but you might have to take it in to a repair place to have that done.

'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:
Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!
Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.
Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.
If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)
